    Orignal find:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/GalaxyNote8...memo_shortcut/

    play store link

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...onmemoshortcut

    This app has only one purpose:
    -Pressing it will launch Action Memo if S-Note is already installed on your device.

    The reason for this app is due to the exclusion of S-Note on newer Note devices and the usefulness of Action Memo.

    With the removal of double-tapping the screen to launch Action Memo, it became a bit troublesome to call up Action Memo after installing S-Note.

    This shortcut can be placed anywhere that can launch an app, such as:
    - SPen's Air Command
    - Apps Edge
    - Any other launcher apps

    Once again, this app is not S-Note nor will it come with S-Note. S-Note must be obtained from a separate source.

    Not my creation, credit goes to Zolaris Apps.

    Has worked like a dream for me since about an hour after it was posted on Reddit. I have it in Air Command as the first option.

    Sorry, it worked for me without incident. I will have to play with it some more and see if we have information to file bug reports with.

    Worked for me! Thank you for pointing me in the right direction Cary Quinn. It was getting old tapping the S note app instead opening a fresh memo directly.

    I've got it on Air Command as well as a direct single tap on Lightning Launcher. Again... good lookin out.

    P.S. And now I'm using Note Buddy to auto launch Action memo when I pull the S-pen. I'm set now.

    My phone had a system update over night and now my action memo no longer works. I tried to reinstall the apk file and it says it's corrupt. I don't understand why Samsung doesn't want us to use something that everyone obviously loves.

    I initially installed S-Note using instructions here on the forum...but couldn't get the action memo to work. I think the apk were different. Then I found the files and dn from and now it works even with last night's update....maybe it will help you.

    Whatever version I had, kept crashing, and that shortcut someone made froze and I had to reboot. I think this is a different version. Plan to give it one more try. Thanks. Oh what carrier is everyone on that got it to work? Any on Verizon? Just to make sure.

    I'm on Verizon...and the one above I posted files worked for me. But this morning when I opened S-Note I got a notification that there's an update, which I made a mistake and did and Action Memo was no longer available. So I had to uninstall and reinstall, all good now.

    I downloaded this again and no luck. Still shows as being corrupt. Now what should I do to get this to work?
    Nevermind I got it back.

    Do you have automatic updates enabled in either Play store or Galaxy app store?

    I just turned them off and reinstalled it again. Hope it stays this time. Samsung fixed the Bixby issue that people were complaining of. I just don't understand why they're determined to take away our action memo!

    No, it does not. Tasker just enhances this app.
